If I knew then.......!!

In Ireland, but from Bucks.
I've only been doing this madness for just over 2 years now.

If I knew then, what little I know now, my approach would be a bit different.

Instead of buying endless certs, I would buy Parish Registers on disc.

I was fortunate enough to be 'gifted' quite a few, and have bought a few.

I would have saved myself an absolute fortune, if I had done this earlier in my research.
For approximately £5-10 per disc, I have found 100's of marriages,baptisms and deaths which have saved me all those certs purchases.

So before you start sending for certs, consider buying discs(if they exist for your area). If you only get 2 records from it, you are saving cash straight away.
Since I rediscovered my Aylesbury PR disc, it has saved me almost £90 in certs.

If only......:rolleyes:
